Why Ebenezer Forest Farm?
Welcome to the first ever posting of the Ebenezer Forest Farm Blog..... better known as the Strang Family Blog. Since we are so new to this we thought we would explain the reason why our blog and farm are called "Ebenezer Forest Farm". Well, if you are thinking Ebenezer Scrooge`a la Charles Dickens..... then you are mistaken! We chose the name "Ebenezer" because in I Samuel 7:12 the scripture says, "Then Samuel took a stone... and called the name of it Ebenezer, saying, Hitherto hath the LORD helped us." This is the real story of our lives in Christ. Our farm property boarders a beautiful creek in the midst of a thick forest that has an abundance of stones. Hence... the name "Ebenezer Forest Farm".
Actually.... we are just a home schooling, city slicker, newly country arrived, KJV Bible reading, born again Christian family who have decided to give up the ease of city life and take on the yoke of Christ in a simple country lifestyle. Stay tuned to our blog to enjoy the antics of five children, four goats, 20 chickens, one barn cat... and two exhausted parents as we seek to live our lives in a way that pleases Jesus! "Wise decision.... noble task!"
